Topic: The Stinging Tree
Scripture: Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree. – 1 Peter 2:24
Recommended Reading: Hebrews 2:5-12
Pondering that tree might lead us to think about another tree—the cross of Jesus. Peter told those responsible for the torturous death of Christ: “The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree” (Acts 5:30). And the apostle Paul said, “Now when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb” (Acts 13:29).
We cannot imagine the intense emotional and physical suffering Christ endured, but we know this—by His stripes we are healed!
Jesus hung on a tree as an object of open shame so it would be clear beyond any doubt that God was allowing the death blow of His curse to fall on His Son. All so that you and I could go free.
